Update on Hope Church
Yesterday marked 1 month since the first service at Hope Church. It has been very exciting to see how God has worked over this month. One of our largest crowds was on the 14th of this month with 40 homeless people in service. Bro Martin preached “Life for a Look” — as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up.” Six people responded with lifted hands to the invitation, two came forward for prayer. Bro Martin shares, “The wonderful presence of the Lord was evident.”
This tremendous outreach endeavor has not come without some major challenges. We are seeking to uphold the Kingdom of God, and therefore the enemy knows his kingdom is at stake. No matter the challenges, we KNOW who will always win the battle! I John 4:4 says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
Please pray for the people of Alaska. There is some unrest among the homeless population at this time due to some policies and decisions made by the state officials. We ask you to please agree with us in prayer for the deliverance of the enemy’s strongholds and that the love and peace of God would fill these precious lives. We also ask you to pray for the protection of Bro Martin, Julie, Jalisa, Jordan, and Joy as they endeavor to be Ambassadors for Christ.
Thank you for being laborers together with us in the work of God. May God bless you!
